Day 19: Directionally Challenged

Today is the big race

When 1000s of people will show up

to run

to walk

to skip

5 miles

to do whatever it takes

to finish the race.

The course will be filled with energy

as bystanders

cheer on the runners

from start to finish

as they run the course

that is set before them.

Following the leader

following the one

in front of me

as I don't know the course

as I am beyond

Directionally Challenged

but I won't get lost

because I will follow the crowd

to the finish line.


What if the leader of the pack

changed the course

where would all of the runners end up~

at his/her finish line

because they

because I

will follow the leader

even over a cliff.

Just like sheep

as sheep

have an instinct to follow the sheep in front of them~

if one jumps off a cliff

they will all jump off


their leader leads

no thinking allowed.

Directionally Challenged~

in need of a

Good Shepherd

To Trust in with all my heart

to point me

in the right direction

to get me back on course


I am

Directionally Challenged

The Good Shepherd

Whose eyes I am to be fixed on

as I run

as you run

this race called



let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,

By following

The Good Shepherd


fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. Hebrews 12:1-2

Who will never lead us off a cliff...

but if

He did

He would be right there to

catch us.
